50th Anniversary Locke
A meeting for the committee for the 50th Anniversary will be held at the
lodge on April 30th at 10:00am. Anyone interested in being on the
committee or helping out in any way, please try to join us. If you
cannot make it that day and still want to be involved, please e-mail:
email@example.com. Different people have expressed interest
since a lot of residents have had their summers here at Locke Lake and
have fond memories of being here. We want to celebrate that and
look forward in having many people attend the cookout and festivities.
